Breakfast was good, beds were clean.staff was good but you can not use wi-fi in the rooms, and there is just one power socket in the rooms near the toilet.

The receptionists must study the Touristic areas in order to better inform their guests.

We really liked this hostel. The staff was really nice and helpful. We really appreciated their discount tickets on the attractions in the area, and breakfast included in the price was a major plus. The location is definitely within walking distance to the tourist sites as well. If your staying the weekend, I would recommend this hostel.

Very basic hostel - but great location. Atmosphere lacking as it is a massive hostel- mixed demographic. Good breakfast with nice view of the park. Need to pay for towels , safe & luggage storage. Also need to make up bed on arrival. Staff friendly & helpful. One of the better hostels that I have stayed in in Amsterdam - but not a patch on hostels in Germany , Portugal & Spain.

Good to hear you like our location and helpful and friendly staff. We do actually have a 'Full service' package which includes making up your bed and a towel for € 6,50. As we are a hostel you are right you need to pay for a towel, a padlock and for luggage storage. It's € 4,50 for both a towel and a padlock and the lockers are only 0,20 cents an hour. These are all extra service, feel free to bring your own towel and padlock to save money. Txs for breakfast compliment

Really great location, breakfast is actually worth it only downfalls: wifi only works in the lounge and the bathrooms needed a better cleaning

Thanks for the great comments and we will keep an eye on the bathrooms. You can always come to reception to request some extra cleaning if needed, so we can solve any issue immediately.

A double bed would have been nice for the private room but besides that it was pretty good.The staff are really nice and helpful and it was in a really good location

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there thanks for your great rating even though you did not have a double bed. Our private rooms sometimes have a bunk bed and sometimes two single beds which we/you could shove together. It's always possible to e-mail us to request to have 2 single beds put together. Depending upon availability we can arrange this. Thanks for the compliments on our staff and location !

Probably the worst hostel I've stayed in, it was very loud, there were at least 10 different school groups shuffling in and out of the lobby and living areas throughout my stay. It was good for 1-2 nights, but not for stays longer than 3 nights. I left and got a hotel room, that was much better.

The staff was incredibly helpful (except the night security staff which is my only complaint. They were very unhelpful and quick to hand off tasks, but the day staff was amazingly helpful and fun). Very clean and safe and close to everything! Perfect for our 3 day adventure with lots of resources to be utilized for things to do. And breakfast was delicious

Great place, very close to everything. Could do with a bit more sign posting, got a bit lost trying to find it. Also, may be a few more plugs in the rooms. But, overall, a lovely, comfy place with excellent facilities. May

Thank your very much for the compliments. Re the plugs, you can always charge stuff @ reception.

Pros: Location is good - very close to Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. Sheets come in sealed plastic. Showers and bathrooms in dorm room. Breakfast is a bit above average: they provide a couple cereal and bread options along with the usual stuff. Cons: It's enormous, making it difficult to connect with people. WAY TOO expensive on the weekends, 40-plus euro. Rooms are a bit dark and many are at ground level. If you're a traveling college kid, this is the place for you.

Thanks about location. We are a large hostel but luckily divided into three buildings so it feels less big. We got rooms located on three different levels. In building A even four levels. Our pricing is comparable to similar properties in the area and we feel we provide good value given our central location and facilities. We regret that this was not your impression.

There is no plugs for each bed, which is very bad for hostels. Wifi not in the rooms is another negative topic. Breakfast very good with many options, very well located, staff very kinldy.

thanks for breakfast compliments, Wifi is only in the common area's at this moment. We realize there is not many plugs in the rooms, so too everybody: feel free to charge your electronic devices at reception (free of charge of course.)
